Full of French goodness...

I am still walking on air
we have to eat so
take a look at this fantastic
Tarte Tatin.

This creation took so much time.... 20 minutes.
God Bless Trader Joe's.
It did come from the South of France though.

I thought about making one but when I saw this
I knew it was not to be-hehe.

You know I love to read and if you haven't read these,
put them on your list.
Both have been out for a while
but I visit them often for recipes.

Susan Herrmann Loomis is one talented lady.
Visiting her cooking school in Normandy is
on my short list (o.k, maybe long list).
Doesn't that sound like a wonderful
way to spend a few days?

Thank you so much for your comments on
countdown to Baby 2010 ver. 4.0.
I think I will be floating until ver. 4.0 is released.
Thank you Jeff and Dorothy!

big hugs,

P.S. I am sending AZ warmth to those of you that are
dealing with all the snow and cold.

I love making Tarte Tatin, such an easy recipe. Did you know it takes its name from the sisters Tatin who 'invented' it?

Made one for Thanksgiving. Yuck. I need a different recipe for sure. My crust was like glue.
It sure smelled divine though.

Susan will be in Florida in March giving a demo if you are in the area!If you have any questions about her and the class, feel free to email me! I have posted a blog some time back about Susan.

Hi, I wrote a little about Tarte Tatin a while back and thought maybe some of your readers would enjoy the story: French apple tart.

Lori, who tried a Tarte Tatin at Thanksgiving - my Tarte Tatin's (I've made them with things other then apples) always seem a bit soggy, if not gluey. I kind of think it's unavoidable, but maybe someone has a method for getting a crispier crust?
